Schwarzfahrer

Schwarzfahrer is a 1993 short film from Germany, directed by Pepe Danquhart, that won the Academy Award for Best Short Subject. The title is based on a term with a dual meaning: "Schwarzfahrer" translates as "fare-dodger", but can also mean "black rider". The 12 minute film revolves around a black man (Paul Outlaw) who faces a racist tirade from a elderly German woman (Senta Moira) on a tram.
